Maybe you have noticed this strange, root-like item in the produce department of the market and wondered, “What is that?” Well, that weird little piece of ginger root packs a whole lot of health benefits that can help you “get going” and feel great.
This ancient spice contains phytonutrients called gingerol that have been linked to reducing pain and inflammation in the body. Studies have shown that when consumed consistently, people experiencing joint or muscle discomfort reported a reduction in pain.
Ginger is an aromatic spice that can be easily added-in to many dishes such as soups and stir-frys giving your ordinary meal some flair and an extra kick. Ginger can be found in most supermarkets with the powdered spices or fresh in the produce aisle.
To make a simple, anti-inflammatory Ginger Tea:
•Peel and roughly chop 1 small piece of ginger root (enough to create 1 to 2 heaping tablespoons)
•Place chopped ginger in boiled water and let simmer for about 2 minutes
•Strain ginger out of water
•Drink as a tea & enjoy!
